Shower chances clear away in Minneapolis forecast
After light showers yesterday afternoon popped up in the Twin Cities, we cooled down a bit and saw our sunshine disappear. Overnight we saw yet another rain chance, which has lingered into the morning.
Here’s the radar view as of 7:30 a.m. this morning:
Looking at that fairly empty radar map you can see a boundary near SW Minnesota that stretches northeast – but that’s about where the interest ends. We’ll likely see a cloudy start and some mist/drizzle, or just dry conditions.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, we’ll slowly clear up and dry up today. You may see some peeks of sunshine before sunset today – but then Wednesday and Thursday look sunny.
Toward the end of the week, we’ll watch as rain returns. Thursday night to Friday is the first chance, and then more rain Saturday afternoon/evening and into Sunday and beyond.
